Castings for Calendar Girls dates announced!

At long last, and after much excitement in the local am dram community, we are pleased to announce the casting dates for Calendar Girls!

Our castings are done through a round-table reading at our rehearsal room - The Green Room. Everyone takes it in turns to read different parts in a relaxed and friendly environment. We always welcome new members so feel free to come along and try for a part. Ideally, you should come to both readings to have the best chance to show your abilities.
  • Tuesday, 19th June 2012, 7.30pm - First reading for Calendar Girls
  • Thursday, 28th June 2012 7.30pm - Second reading for Calendar Girls
There are a variety of roles for 10 women and 4 men of a range of ages. To be considered for a part you must be available every evening of the play week from 5th to 10th November 2012, and preferably the normal rehearsals the week before too. We usually rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week, and perform four nights, plus technical and dress rehearsals. We may add a matinee performance on Saturday 10th November too. You will need to become a member for at least the duration of the rehearsals and performance - current membership fees are £6 a month for full members.

A NOTE ABOUT NUDITY: Although this show is well known for featuring nudity, it shouldn't be intimidating. The script is very cleverly written so that nobody should be exposed (smoke and mirrors). You (and your partners and families!) should, however, be comfortable with the idea of showing some skin if you want to go for one of the six women that feature in the calendar scene!

While you're here, why not take our survey to help us make some important decisions about Calendar Girls and future productions. You'll also be in with a chance of winning tickets to see Calendar Girls, or a £10 high street gift voucher! Take our survey.
